Red Dead Redemption GOTY... finally!


Since the announcement of a Game of the Year strategy guide surfaced for Red Dead Redemption, I've been waiting patiently for the game version to follow. My wait is finally over now that Rockstar has officially announced Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition. To be released in about a month, Rockstar compiles all the redemption-rific add-ons and such to rope in the core audience, as well as newcomers. This edition will include all current DLC, including:

-Legends and Killers
-Undead Nightmare
-Liars and Cheats
-Outlaws to the End
-Solomonís Folly
-A new hardcore mode to make the west more treacherous

Priced at $50, it will bring all the gamers to the yard and realize itís better than yours. This edition will drop on October 14, and Rockstar implores you to heavily consider purchasing it for you collection. Keep in mind that for me, it's been hard for me to get into Rockstar titles such as Grand Theft Auto. Sure, I spent a lot of afternoons running people over in San Andreas while Snoop Dogg bumped on the radio. I might have stomped a few pedestrians to death, beat and robbed some hookers, and gotten all the way up to five stars in an epic gun battle with the SWAT team... but that doesn't mean I was enthralled in the likes of the game.

I've always gotten tired with the game very quickly, and developed a dislike for the game because I wasn't sure that being a flat-out criminal was right for me and my cerebral development. I guess my point is... what's the point? Red Dead Redemption is similar in gameplay type and gives me that same unaccomplished feeling that GTA did. I know in my heart that John Marston is a great character in a great game, but why can't I bring myself to love a game that has earned Game of the Year? Actually, Fallout 3 won Game of the Year, but don't get me started on why I can't stand that title.

When Red Dead first dropped, I played for an hour and rode my horse out into the wild only to get lost. While lost, I decided to shoot some desert animals, getting off my noble steed to line up some shots. Little did I know how treacherous the wild west could be in a video game. Some bum ran up and stole my horse! I was already a bit bored with it, but at that point, I gave up on it. Since then, I've borrowed the game, but have had no desire to play it again. Maybe I'm just being a weirdo, or maybe I'm the only sane one this side of the computer screen. Either way, I'm considering trying it again... any tips?

Baweepgranaweepminibon! I'm Vernon and I love Mass Effect with a passion that is only overcome by my love of beautiful women... especially mine. I love writing and I love video games, so I thought it'd be a good idea to combine the two into a little video game blog thingy called Get Tuitt. It's a blog I started a while back, but the name is a little more recent. My last name is Tuitt, so it kinda stuck with me. By the way, hate all you want, but it works out perfectly! I post my opinions on certain happenings in the gaming industry, and try to see as many sides to any given situation. However, I will always end up on one side... my side... the right one.

I got into gaming at a young age when my father introduced me to the NES, and my love for gaming grew from there. I love game like Uncharted, Halo, God of War, NCAA, Jak and Daxter, LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth, Prince of Persia, and the best one of them all... MASS EFFECT! You should probably know that I'm obsessively waiting for the third installment and with gobble up any news I hear.

Anyway, love it or hate, I'm gonna let my writing thang shine. Comment, rant, and pass the word along... and remember that when you can't do it, Get Tuitt! Also, if anyone knows how to unlock true biotic potential in humans, please let me know. I'm trying to get my mom to learn Warp.... ;-)
